I just found a copy of the C250 Owners' Manual online that is much better than the one archived in our Manuals and Brochures pages. Apparently the drawings were deleted from our version. Those drawings make the text much more understandable, as in "a picture is worth a thousand words." This more complete manual should be substituted for the one currently in our Manuals and Brochures pages. For example, here's a link to a page that contains a drawing that was omitted from our version. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/742806/Catalina-250.html?page=20#manual

Here's a link to the complete Manual. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/742806/Catalina-250.html#manual

If you scroll down just a little, you'll find a "Quick Link" that says "Download this manual."

Hmmm. I just discovered that the manuals on our website have the pictures, but you have to click on the word "picture" to open it. I hope, and suspect, I'm not the only person who has missed that detail. It would be a big improvement if the pictures could appear in the texts of all our owners' manuals without having to click on a link. That would enable the reader to see the picture while reading the text.

Be careful if you want to download the manual. I was met with an attempt of ransomware which is easily defeated but still...
